I have made a few threads with some legitimate concerns regarding the decline of Apple's software quality and obviously the fanboys come out in droves to tell me to "go get Android" or "download an alternative 3rd party app" which neither solves the actual issue at hand. I'm constantly being told that my complaints and concerns are invalid and that the thread should be locked. What kind of message does that say about Apple's most loyal and devoted? Any form of criticism and dissent needs to be quickly stamped out because Apple is all-knowing, all-wise, perfect and can do no wrong in their eyes. That's the exact mentality that has enabled Apple under Tim Cook to produce and release half-baked and ill-conceived products and services. In that way, hardcore Apple fans are just as radical as the most extreme Android users. I will not apologize for holding Apple up to the standards that Steve set just as the fanboys will not apologize for Apple's recent and increasingly longer list of shortcomings and try to defend them and justify their decisions at every turn. So that ultimately leads to the initial question and premise of this thread, is criticizing Apple no matter how legitimate or constructive seemingly banned here? I consider myself an Apple fan, one who has been highly disappointed with the direction they've been going in and some many here give Apple a free pass because they can't fathom a repeat of the 90s which seems more and more likely with each passing year of Tim Cook as CEO.
